Another day, another fungus. This one growing a good foot above head height, so difficult to examine in situ.
The books don't agree on whether P. stipticus tastes of anything. Roger Phillips' Mushrooms says, "taste bitter" whereas Michael Jordan's Fungi says, "taste not distinctive". I tasted a tiny bit. It didn't taste very distinctive to me.
Both books say P. stipticus has a white spore print. So does mine. Ta daa!
IT GLOWS IN THE DARK!? So I sat in a darkened room with my specimen for ten minutes when I got in from work: It didn't glow. (But then the thing I read says it's only individuals from eastern North America that glow. Which I think is weird.)
In conclusion, reckon this might be Bitter Oysterling (Panellus stipticus) but I'm not sure. I'll believe it when I see it glow.
